Parents' & Student's 2020 Tax Return


Submit your tax return and all supporting documentation to the College Board by uploading it to the IDOC website. Be sure to sign your tax return before submitting it.

Tax documentation is required for parents as well as the student. For non-tax filers, see the following pages for alternative documentation:

US Income Tax Return
To help verify your income, you will need to submit a signed copy your 2020 federal tax return.  This includes:

  • Form 1040
  • All W-2s and 1099s
  • All Schedules
    • Schedule 1
    • Schedule 2 (if applicable)
    • Schedule 3 (if applicable)
    • Schedule A (if applicable)
    • Schedule B (if applicable)
    • Schedule C (if applicable)
    • Schedule D (if applicable)
    • Schedule E (if applicable)

In addition, if you own corporations, partnerships or trusts, please include copies of those tax returns (Forms 1041, 1065, 1120, 1120S, K-1).

Non-US Income Tax Return
To help verify your income, you will need to submit your 2020 national income tax return or the most recently filed statement, including all supporting schedules. All income documents should be translated into English.

In the absence of your current tax return, you may submit a statement from your employer instead.  This statement should verify your annual earnings and be stamped or signed by an official of the employer.  Please have this statement translated into English, if necessary.
